The best thing would be to get your hands on an Algebra 2 book published by South- Western Publishing. Throughout the book are things called AlgebraWorks with real algebra on the job examples! For example Real Estate Agent - Write a function that an agent can use to compute a 3% commission on the selling price of a home. Or Craft Worker - When Daria and Frank work together, it takes them 2 hours to paint a single doll house. What fractional part of the job is complete in one hour if they work together? These are from the book.
